Domestic Quarantine

Domestic Quarantine may be defined as the restriction imposed by Plant Quarantine authorities in association with State machinery on the production, movement and existence of plants and planting material and is brought under regulation in order to prevent the introduction or spread of a pest.

In the wake of WTO-SPS Agreement, it is of more paramount importance to maintain “Pest free Area” to gain export market access in different countries without the need for application of additional phytosanitary measures. The PFA established and maintained as per International Standards forms an element of justification of phytosanitary measures.

Under the DIP Act, 1914 there have been different notifications from time to time restricting the movement of plant and planting material due to the introduction & partial establishment of invasive pests in certain areas of the state. Some of such notifications issued under section 4A of this Act- Domestic Quarantine are given below:-
